This annual summit draws together legions of the education industry’s traditional players and a growing number of newcomers. In fact SIIA can lay claim to having mentored over 150 innovators over the past five years. May 7 is entirely devoted to the edtech startup life; register here for the day but be warned about the $495 price for nonmembers. The whole Ed Tech Industry Summit will be interesting: this year's theme, Navigating 'Next,' will feature speakers including Karen Billings, Ron Reed, and our very own Betsy Corcoran discussing what's coming next in the teaching and learning process in a post-PC world. Here's your chance to check out the education finalists for the CODiE Awards. Registration for the three day event run a little steep (above $1K).
